Nutrition: Food, Health, and Spiritual Development by Rudolf Steiner

Translated by Christian von Arnim. 2009. 192 pages.

Selected lectures from various volumes in The Collected Works of Rudolf Steiner.

In this carefully collated anthology (including an introduction, commentary, and notes by Christian von Arnim), Rudolf Steiner considers nutrition in the light of his anthroposophic spiritual-scientific research. He explains the impact of raw food, vegetarian, and meat diets; the effects of protein, fats, carbohydrates, and salts; individual foods such as potatoes, beets, and radishes; and the impact of alcohol and nicotine.

The insights in Nutrition are vital to anyone with a serious interest in health, diet, and spiritual development.
